    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for AMD, Nvidia, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    I was surprised. BB started working the line b4 they opened at 10 am. I got there about 45 min b4 they opened and there was about 20 people in line, I almost left. I thought WTH I'll stick a bit more. Then an employee came out with a paper that said 3090 "anyone want a 3090?". I asked if that's...

    Same chipset, do I need to reinstall windows 10 ?

    I recently swapped a ASUS Z170-A to an Asus Z490-A and Win 10 would not reactivate. Long story short, I had to send MS receipts of my Z170-A purchase which was a PIA and took a long time. I read you can activate by phone or through some chat system...good luck with that. I had to RMA my Z490-A...

    Swapping motherboards - Existing Windows 10 install

    No, it's was an upgrade from Windows 7 Ultimate (non-oem) to Win 10 that I did while it was free. Also, FWIW I've never did a fresh install of Windows since Jan 2011 to pesent date.

    Swapping motherboards - Existing Windows 10 install

    I swapped out an Asus board that I rma'd with the same model. Windows would not activate and trying to get MS involved was a joke. Could never get their reactivation procedure to work so bought another key. (Win Pro). Before that I upgraded from an older mobo to a newer version and MS required I...

    No Windows 10 "sounds" but all other sound works

    I booted up this morning and noticed I had no Windows (1803) native sounds. All other sounds work fine (via speakers, headphones). I ran the audio troubleshooter (it found no issues) and searched the net for answers but I'm stumped. I cannot get the "test" button to toggle and play the sound...

    Arma 3 Free to Play Weekend

    You assume I play on public servers I guess but I don't. Never have never will. I only play Pilgrimage mod in SP or COOP. COOP with friends only with me serving. Therefore I don't care about DLC assets.

    Plus, even if you DON'T want the DLC you are forced to download GB's of useless data that contains the DLC which of course you can't use cause you didn't buy.

    Perhaps the best headphones at...$50?

    The software that came with my Soundblaster Z has settings in the Crystal Voice section to help eliminate sound leaking thru. I don't have my new mic yet but I'm hoping I don't have it or I can correct it. Might your sound card have something too?

    I too bought these headphones as the OP suggested and the single 3.5 jack did not work with the mic. Ordered the Vmodo as it has the separate jacks with splitter. I’ve gone through various headphones because they all give me a headache and I do wear glasses. So far these Phillips feel very...
